CASA Distinguished Lectures

In our CASA Distinguished Lectures, we welcome selected international and national scientists at the HGI. The lectures of these influential and pioneering guest speakers, usually lasting one hour, are always followed by a discussion with the participants. Our goal is to encourage discussions and open up new perspectives within the field of cybersecurity research.

Women in Security and Cryptography Workshop (WISC)

2025

The workshop is aimed at PhD students and outstanding female students in the field of IT security and offers expert presentations and exchanges of senior and junior female researchers in this field. The goal of WISC is to build a strong international network of junior women researchers and create a valuable academic program. WISC is held on a biennial basis. After the WISC had to be held digitally in 2021 due to pandemic, CASA welcomes female scientists in 2023 on-site in Bochum for three exciting days of learning and networking.
